Thank you serafena for posting the article.
Wow...I can't imagine what it is like for a baby to be diagnosed with bi-polar is like. This article gives me some insight. My heart goes out to these children and their parents. Their whole lives seem to be consumed with this illness. I hope one day they will be able to find new treatments/therapies to help these children grow up in a less chaotic way.
I know how hard it was for me first being diagnosed with bi-polar and all that I had to go through to get to a place of some normalcy in my life. How difficult it is for a baby/young child to go through this. Their parents are earth angels and have to live with this illness 24/7. I think the parents have it harder than most of us do.
We as adults can manage our wellness programs. But little children need their parents EVERY step of the way! My heart goes out to all the parents of children with bi-polar disorder. Without them advocating for their children,...I don't even want to think what their lives would be like.
I thought I had exhausting days! Parents of children with bi-polar disorder that work as hard as these two parents are deserve a standing ovation!!!! Where would this little boy be without the help, love & perseverance of their parents!
